Definitely the pocket hanger was better finished.
The carabiner just needs introducing to some Solvol Autosol, a couple of cotton buds and a soft cloth. It’s just gote some of the polishing compound in some of the harder to get at places. Shocked
As I said at this price it’s a nice slab of Stainless Steel with useful shapes. Smile

Oooh the EMT shears look nice. Any word on the quality? I’ve been trying to build a couple good first aid kits.

I’ll post here when mine arrive, they look like they are strong and the dimensions, 7.2 in x 3.7 in x 0.39 in and the weight 2.47 oz combined with the shape with the ridges pressed in should make for a strong pair of scissors – it all depends on how well the handles are attached I suppose.

Who says I’ll buy anything that is bright and shiny?
Couldn’t resist these shiny colourful things.

“Detachable 6mm diameter Multi Color Screw” Dimensions: 3.90 in x 0.43 in x 0.43 in (9.9 cm x 1.1 cm x 1.1 cm)
Hmm, detachable 6mm screw, 99mmx11mmx11mm I’m thinking lanyard beads and washers, maybe 18 for £2.50.

Banggood have a mini pry but it’s not the one I want. ;_; The ruler markings could be useful though. £2.50, and 55g.

The EMT Shears have arrived and they are pretty much full size scissors with a two fingers one thumb grip.

I thought that they were horribly scratchy at first but then realised that one edge of the scissors has tiny serrations on it.

The grips are well attached and show no signs of looseness. The blade sections have a “safety” tip, no sharp points which could increase any injury that you were dealing with.

Quality, they aren’t up to Fiskars quality but for £3.50 they’re O.K. Much better for one drop of Sentry Tuff-Glide on the pivot.
They deal with “Blue Line” dressing fine and will cross cut 550 Paracord as well as angle cut for melting the end into a point.

Talking of Paracord the Pretty Shineys arrived as well -

Twelve beads harvested to go into the 550 Paracord bits box for £2.34.

Had to buy one of these as well while I was checking prices.

I’m sure it will clutter up my EDC bag come in very handy.

Thanks for the heads up, Steve. So in your opinion those shears are worth putting into a first aid kit?

The multi-wrench looks cool but I’d worry that the steel might be too soft for anything but a one-time emergency use. I’m interested to know if it would stand up to regular EDC use working with nuts and bolts.

Yes, they would do the job, they don’t feel as solid as some scissors and the pivot is a rivet type but looks able to be hammer tightened down the line if it gets loose, plenty strong enough for EMT use and maybe even those kitten tails. Wink
The multi wrench won’t be put to hard use, if at all, it looks like the metal is too thin but you never know.

Does it say anything about where the shears were made or autoclaving?

I am still hoping for that mini-pry bar as seen earlier in this thread…

I came across some more things:

I’ve seen this before by HX Outdoor, but it had a camo painting. This is plain:

A paracord line thrower?

There is even a can-opener:

I went for the khaki pair.
You shouldn’t have long to wait Racer, 13 days to the U.K. is good time.
The shears say nothing about autoclaving, the plastic should be up to it. Arrived in a plastic bag (inside the packaging) with no markings. The only other marks are “stainless” and “China” stamped into one of the blades.
You can’t tempt me with any more of the goodies, maybe the Paracord thrower next month. The can opener is a copy of the P38 and P51 can openers issued to U.S. troops.

Oh hell I’ve just hit the buy button on that 550 paracord thrower! Wink

My sister has two big boxes of those USA-made P38 and P51 can openers. Her house is like an EDC dream store, and I always take (and leave) a bag of swag whenever I visit, and never forget to grab a couple extra can openers and such.

You used to be able to get 5 for £1 at the Army Surplus stores but now they’ve gone way up in price £2 for a new BCB branded pressing or £3 with stupid postal charges for genuine ones, place on ebay is quite good you get a P38 and a P51 for £1.94 but the postage is £7.79. Shocked
I’m glad I got a few when I was doing the bike rallies.

I did a bad thing, searching for “edcgear” on Aliexpress. There are many interesting gadgets from this new brand (assuming they are new ;)).

Cannot believe the price on these (pico?) prybars (5 for $ :X):
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Crank-stainless-steel-clawbar-scraper-key...

There is a funky compact carbon fibre key organiser:

And a shiny silvery take on the black Gerber shard:

If you’ve ever wanted a fauxton in olive drab to match other gear:
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/4pcs-High-Brightness-EDC-mini-key-light-small-body-big-purpose-EDCGEAR-produced-free-shipping/1362508353.html

These scissors are also sold under “True Utility” brand. I don’t think I can see myself carrying a larger pair when my Victorinox scissors are fine (and much smaller) but maybe someone has a need for compact but not tiny pair of non-multitool scissors:
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Edc-stainless-steel-scissors-latch-with-s...

Lastly, this Otterbox style case could be good depending on the seal:

You DID did a bad thing, my card is having an easter break as in it’s easter and I’m broke. Those prybars are very tempting. Might be on my next shopping list but I’m trying to save for a pillar drill so I can start putting some custom scales together.

I’d be very wary of TRUE UTILITY gear, I’ve had a couple of their knives in the past when I knew no better and they were true crap.

Did you notice the Diamond grinding paste under the scissors? just the thing for preparing knives to do battle in the spring tomato massacre. :bigsmile: Sushi

The Shard clone looks like an actual Shard. You can see in the photo that they just Photoshopped the Gerber name off it, and it’s more expensive than the real thing with Amazon Prime 2 day delivery.

Looks like they have a Leatherman Piranah clone, too for 10 bucks less than the real thing. EDCGear is definitely making some interesting stuff. Those Fauxtons look interesting as well.

The cost of shipping overseas from the States is a deal breaker for me 99% of the time.
So free international shipping is a great advantage for me + I think the two versions of the Shard are the same (similar to other Gerber products).

Try eBay UK for a prybar some for about the same price as AliExpress http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mini-Pry-Bar-Nail-puller-/111316469136?pt=UK_H...

The pico bar are no longer available from CountyComm resellers (creating a nice demand). So I hope the EDCGear is a decent steel for prying.

I didn’t see, maybe it’s randomised. The price for a set is good.

I already have some of this diamond paste from RGD Tools. It’s good for sharpening but is super messy. 0.5 micron is the one I found the most useful.

That’s a good sized prybar, I’d have to take a hacksaw to it, the 90° bend wouldn’t fit my “manbag”. Smile
I prefer the look of the D-9 steel on the CountyComm bars. Silly

It probably is the real thing, minus Gerber branding and black coating. I remember seeing some Shard mods to look essentially the same. You can try paint stripper and then hand polishing?

Simon of Convoy has a nice selection of EDCGear stuff but minimum order is not 1 pc:
http://www.aliexpress.com/store/group/EDC-tool/330416_255390425.html

There is some TAD-inspired tools like this one:

Fish hook blade?!

Carbon-fibre wallet card seems quite innovative:

Now if only some of these tools were made of titanium instead. (Please make a pico pry bar in titanium!!)

Which one? Some of them have cutaways to open cans and bolts, and slotted screws.

Mostly I would use the pico bar for opening paint cans and other odd things one might misuse a knife or flat-bladed screwdriver for.

I found a nice pic comparing three of them:
